Are you purposely ignoring people's post, many of which stated it's a superior soliciting a subordinate who isn't even old enough to vote.

Are you taking on a new role as troll now?

Again, haven't you been reading their posts? They've made it very clear why they think this is wrong.

I think this issue brings up some very good questions of what we believe is right and wrong - and why we believe it.

So you believe it's ok for a superior to a take advantage of their subordinates? If you do start another thread.

I think you are grasping at straws, your underling tone is obvious.

I agree. However, one person may consider himself logical and reasonable - yet others consider that same person illogical and unreasonable (as we witness in FYM on a daily basis)

Only in the relationship and how Clinton was wrong to pursue it. SHE came on to HIM, which does change the situation somewhat.

Monica/Clinton had a consensual affair. It is not illegal to commit adultery.

Foley sent sexually inappropriate messages to a subordinate who did not consent.

There's a big difference, as I see it.

I think Foley was acting like a liberal Democrat and if he were a Democrat the hypocrites would have been silent and there would have been no thread or one w little interest here..

That said, that he is a Republican; were punishing him like one unlike what the Democrats do to their own.

Are we clear?
Now the rest of you get a life.

Thank you

Nothing like singlehandedly substantiating the thread title.
